The Barge Lady, aka Ellen Sack, a veteran broker of European canal barge vacations, has announced her "Top 10 Barge Values List."  Savings of up to 50% per person off the printed rates have become available for the 2009 season.
"I have selected not only programs offering the most meaningful savings, but also vessels which best represent the unique, personalized and relaxing experiences for which barging is renowned. Travelers can choose from a full range of value-priced cruises: From a 2 for 1 offer on France's top Ultra-Deluxe barges to a "Chocolate and Wine" experience for just six guests on the intimate canals of Burgundy," said Ms. Sack.
With the dollar gaining in strength and airfares remaining stable, 2009 will be an excellent year to plan an affordable European vacation. "Our prices begin at $2200 per person for a six night cruise," added Ms. Sack.
To access the list, go to, then scroll down on the Main Page. Ms. Sack and her staff visit the barges regularly - and have floated on many "Top 10" vessels.  For more on their adventures, scroll down even further and access the Blog. (We also enclose this list as a word document.) 
Six night/seven day cruises are available between the dates April 4- October 31, 2009. Barges are small vessels, ranging in size from four to twenty two guests. A barge cruise is thus ideal for  a private charter party and has become a popular vacation for three-generation families. The cruise price includes all meals, wine, open bar, daily chauffeured and guided sightseeing as well as personalized service from English-speaking crew. Barge cruising is available in France, Great Britain, Holland, Ireland, Scotland and Germany.
